Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap… and Others Don’t
“Good to Great” sold 1 million copies in just 18 months of release. This book has been voted by Forbes magazine as one of the 20 most influential works in the world about management in the past 20 years.
The book provides a model for turning a mere ordinary, or good, company into a great company. Accordingly, by applying disciplined people, disciplined thinking and disciplined action, a company can build and disrupt and break the barriers that prevent itself from reaching greatness.
Jim Collins summarized from 11 considered great companies in the world and found that, 10 out of 11 great companies, their leaders choose ordinary colleagues. One of the book’s remarkable points is “people go first, work follows”.
